Listen More and Talk Less: The Power of Coaching
With so much curiosity and misunderstanding around coaching, we're diving into how influential our training as coaches has been in our own transformation. We're laying out some of the core skills anyone can use to change the way they connect and support others. After hearing our unscripted coaching, you'll walk away with a better sense of how talking less and listening more works.
Jumping in With Rosanna Durruthy on Self-Acceptance for Global Change

Jumping In with Marc Brackett on Permission to Feel
We live in a world where it has become critical to be aware of our emotions for self-development and interpersonal interactions, yet most of us were never taught these skills. In this week’s episode, we’re jumping in the arena with Marc Brackett, Ph.D., founding director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, on his 2019 book Permission to Feel. Through his personal stories, you’ll hear how the framework he’s introducing globally is redesigning how people, from students to corporate leaders, become more curious, open, and understanding of their emotions.
Laughter is the Best Medicine
This week we're talking about one of the oldest human languages. Inspired by the book Humor, Seriously by Dr. Jennifer Aaker and Naomi Bagdonas, we share ways you can be intentional about creating moments of laughter in your life. From a stronger immune system to greater personal satisfaction, who wouldn’t want to reap the benefits of humor?
Jumping In with Yung Pueblo on Clarity & Connection
This week we jump back in with one of our favorite guests, Yung Pueblo (Diego Perez). His second book, Clarity & Connection, poetically delves into what it means to move through a personal transformational process. In our conversation, Diego clarifies the variety of ways to heal yourself, the value of learning how patterns and conditioning affect your perception, and why we all benefit from staying present in our relationships while we grow.
The things that matter most
I love how this pod makes room for the conversations that encourage us to live our full live through our work, rather than compartmentalize. The hosts have great energy too.
You don’t have to be a LinkedIn employee for this to resonate
But it makes me love working for LinkedIn even more. Jackie and Leah raise many good points about bringing your whole self to work. They don’t strive for perfection but rather for relatability. I’ve greatly enjoyed their perspective on a variety of topics.
Creativity (And In the Arena) rocks!
Leah and Jackie provide such a great and thoughtful listen. I really like the idea of exploring the InDay themes more deeply. Episode 4 about creativity was full of spontaneous reflections, and I loved the insight that good conversation is inherently creative...and to see that truth demonstrated in real time on this very podcast was cool.
